Busch Gardens --- If this park was a bit closed to Orlando, I believe you would hear more great reviews about it.

LEGOLAND is for much smaller kids like 5 to 12 years old.

Sea World is OK also.... But Busch would be my choice..

It depends on where you are. If you're staying in downtown Orlando or off I-Drive by Universal, I would probably recommend Sea World. It takes a little over an hour to drive from downtown Orlando to Tampa. If you're staying in Kissimee or closer to Disney, it might not be so bad to drive to Tampa (about 45 minutes).

Sea World is a very nice park, but is limited on thrill rides compared to Busch Gardens. However, making that drive can be annoying when there's so much in Orlando.

If you really love coasters, get up early and head to Tampa for Busch Gardens. Yes, the drive on I-4 can be unholy, but the coasters are worth it... especially Montu, like Brian said, AND Kumba -- it's been a long time since I've ridden it, but it's one of my favorites.
